A family home is a precious asset, and if you have a big family, a home that accommodates everyone can be difficult to find in Canberra. The visually beautiful brick home at 1 Housley Street in Casey is a stunning family home that has room for all, and is set perfectly on the block to take full advantage of views across Halls Creek to the gentle slopes beyond.
Set over two levels, the upper floor houses the open plan kitchen/dining/living room, four bedrooms including the master suite, formal living or media room and family bathroom. There’s also internal access to the two-car lockup garage and the stunning balcony with glass balustrades enabling unobstructed views across the countryside from both inside the living/dining/kitchen and the balcony itself.
The home is just three years old and has a high energy rating. It has double glazing on the balcony doors and windows, the family, living and rumpus rooms, R-6 ceiling insulation, and R-2.5 wall insulation with reflective foil, ensuring the lowest possible heating and cooling costs.
The kitchen is well equipped and spacious enough for a family, with a walk-in pantry, stone benchtop, Omega-5 gas cooktop burners, oven and rangehood. The island bench keeps the home chef connected with family or guests while cooking, and sliding doors provide access to the alfresco dining on the balcony.
The separate formal lounge/media room is ideal for family movie nights, while homework will be attended to at the dedicated, built-in study nook situated between the entrance to the home and the staircase to the lower floor.
The home has some very nice family touches, such as the walk-in linen cupboard, and downstairs on the lower level there are two bedrooms with walk-in robes, a large rumpus room, and a combined bathroom/laundry. Also downstairs is a large, covered entertaining area, making this part of the home an ideal teenager’s retreat, with their own rooms, lounge and outdoor entertaining area.
The master bedroom suite has a walk-in robe and is centrally located in the home, in between the living area and the other three bedrooms on the floor. A family bathroom is located at the end of the home, close to the three other bedrooms, while the master suite has a private ensuite. All bedrooms are spacious and have built-in robes. All bedrooms have television outlets, a thoughtful addition to a family home.
Maria Selleck Properties principal and REIACT Residential Salesperson of the Year in 2020, Maria Selleck, said the home is ready to move into and will make an ideal family home.
“This is a beautiful family home, built in the heights of Casey, offering a versatile and functional floor plan over two levels. It’s meticulously designed to take advantage of the north-easterly aspect as well as capturing spectacular views. The home is very light-filled and offers an EER of 6.
“The home also features stylish interior decoration and an established easy-care garden and plenty of room for a large family and/or for someone who intends to work from home.
“The home has evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating, and the double glazing helps with energy bills and year-round comfort. Casey is a great suburb for families, with the average age of Casey residents around 30 years old, and 13 schools within five kilometres.
“It really is ideal for families,” she said.
The home has a double garage with a remote control door and internal access to the home, instant hot water, a rainwater tank, a large Colourbond garden shed, and is walking distance to both shops and schools.
The home will be auctioned on Saturday, 23 January.
